MRLG calls for applications for new Masters course specialising in land issues


30 March 2017

Looking for a career as a sustainability professional, social researcher, development specialist, humanitarian worker or policy maker? Do you also have an interest in land issues? The first step on your career path could well be a Master of Arts in Social Science (Development Studies) from the Faculty of Social Sciences at Chiang Mai University in Thailand.
Starting in 2017 with the support of the Mekong Region Land Governance project, the course will include a new specialisation in land issues, connecting students with academic institutions, NGOs and researchers from around the Mekong Region.

MRLG is funding up to four scholarships for candidates from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam.
MRLG Deputy Team Leader Dr Christian Castellanet said the new course was a major opportunity to build capacity in this area of research.

“We want this course to attract champions for land governance from the Mekong region, and see it as an excellent opportunity for exploring land issues through new research methods and skills,” he said.
“We strongly encourage people from the region to apply to become part of a new generation of researchers and practitioners working in the field of land governance.”

He also said Chiang Mai University was positioning itself as a centre for training in this area, with linkages to regional universities and professionals.
“We are excited to be part of this new course, and look forward to seeing the calibre of applicants,” Dr Castellanet said.
